  • Michigan Farm Jobs – Harvest and Seasonal Work

    Often overlooked, the agriculture industry in Michigan supplies billions of dollars to the state economy as well as thousands of farm-related careers. Field crops produce the greatest revenue for the state yielding approximately $5.72 billion; however, livestock, including dairy, rival closely with profits soaring to almost $4.73 billion. Further economic impact derives from nursery and landscape production at roughly $1.20 billion. With over 51,600 farms, the food and agriculture industry annually contributes around $101.2 billion to the state gross domestic product. Well known for blueberries, tart cherries, pickling cucumbers, squash, petunias, and geraniums, the Great Lake state also ranks high in production of carrots, celery, dry beans, and apples. Generating more than 300 diverse commodities, Michigan successfully creates employment for 920,000 farm laborers, practically 22% of the workforce.

    A majority of farms in The Wolverine State, roughly 95%, consist of single-family and family-owned partnerships. Of the corporate-structured facilities, approximately 99% comprise of multiple generations. The average farmer stands at 56 years of age and sustains close to 193 acres. Farmland encompasses almost 9.95 million acres of dedicated terrain. Operating off of the land, about 25,000 Michiganders hold primary occupations in the industry. Close to another 52,000 people maintain part-time positions within related fields.

    The Fruit Ridge, a topographical land feature in West Michigan, derives from extensive agricultural activity, specifically fruit production. Also known as the agricultural mecca, The Ridge contains deposits of fertile clay loam soils possessing excellent moisture-holding properties. High elevation, greater than 800 feet, and proximity to Lake Michigan induce the ultimate climate for premium vegetables and fruits. Home to Old Orchard Juice Company, the territory spans well over 158 square miles in portions of Muskegon, Newaygo, and Kent. Acres of apple orchards utilize natural irrigation, cool breezes, and frost-mitigating to successfully produce over 22 varieties of apples. In 2006, the western ridge accounted for 65% of apple production in Michigan. Hand harvesters locate openings at places such as Gavin Orchards, Klackle Orchards, and Harbor Hill Fruit Farms.

    Government-based Migrant, Immigrant and Seasonal Worker Services Division offers a full-range of employment services to job seekers and establishments.

Individuals affluent in farming lifestyles or even possessing advanced degrees generally obtain much higher pay rates compared to the typical $8.00 to $9.00 an hour for entry-level workers. Prosperous occupations hold readily available in fields like agribusiness, technical systems, food and plant science, livestock, natural resources, and processing.
